El-Adly MUST resign

After today's Black protest. The next step for the Kefaya and Muslim brotherhood and everyone else not an NDP whore is to force Habib El-Adly resignination. This is the logical and most powerful step Egyptians could do this year.




  • Mubarak will "win" the upcoming elections, if elections would go as the referendum, which is very likely. The time and energy spent in trying to oppose Mubarak in the elections will be a waste and better left to the candidates for presidency and their supporters.
  • El-Adly is certainly very important to Mubarak. Mubarak didn't force him to step down after THREE terrorist attacks in one year. In the 90s one terrorist attack was enough to remove one interior minister.
  • The Interior Ministry is the ministry with --stemming from the nature of its job-- the worst human rights record.
  • It is considered the most ethically corrupt ministry. They don't only run after money and power. They seek pleasing the government by committing crimes.
  • This ministry murdered, tortured, mass-arrested, attacked civilians and sexually harassed women.
  • The whole public lost hope in this ministry and share this bleak view. Every day they feel the tyranny and oppression exercised by police force in the roads.
  • Phlebotomy

    After almost a month in Pediatrics, I finally managed to break an important psychological barrier. I managed to draw blood from a 2 months old. I was mostly lucky, the boy had a single visible vein. Which I attacked like a hungry leopard. With no fear I poked the needle in it. When the blood started oozing from the needle it was a great relief, I felt self confidence running through my veins. No more hesitation and avoiding venipunture for those underweight malnourished sick kids.

    Repeated power cuts

    WHAT IS WRONG with electricity these days. Eight (and sometimes more) power cuts a day are way too much. I can't stand it any more, I am getting extremely agitated by this. My computer hard drives will die soon. I am starting to think that this is a deliberate plan to prevent me from reading blog stories about last Wednesday.

    Who is the Ministry of Energy and Electricity ? He is from El Omranya.

    Two types of polling stations

    I was told the following by a judge who was in charge of one of the polling stations in Cairo. And what he said probably explains why [Orientalism didn't manage to cast a vote with his national ID only|http://orientalismegypt.blogspot.com/2005/05/conversation-between-me-and-this-man.html] while [Mohammed did|http://fromcairo.blogspot.com/2005/05/meditation-through-participation.html].

    There were two types of polling stations one monitored by judges and only people listed and have a voting card are allowed to vote. And another called a "Moghtarebeen" stations, they are special stations made for people who are coming from cities other than Cairo. Those stations are not monitored by judges. And it is assumed that the people voting don't have a voting card.

    He was given all the details and instructions not before the opening of the polls. But early in the morning at the time of opening.

    Go to Heaven

    To all the assholes, who think that it is appropriate to leave the emergency room and go to the Al Fajr prayer. While the ER is full of patients and a dying 1 year old with only 2 doctors giving him CPR.


    Big screen mobile phones

    Till now, there isn't a single mobile phone with a large enough screen and keypad for old people. They still have to get their reading glasses out of their pockets and make their way through complicated menus to make a call.

    Even if there is no emeregency, I don't enjoy watching them search for their reading glasses, put them on and start pressing on several tiny keys at once with their thick fingers.

    And this [Sagem phone|http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/4566809.stm] is not a solution. It is still a small phone with tiny fonts and tiny keys.

    octopus scrubs

    I wrote the following several months ago:

    ;:In the far future, when mutants are everywhere. Octopuses with human brains will be the most successful surgeons.

    ;:The only thought that makes me survive my medical school today is, I don't have octopuses as colleagues.

    ;:I don't discriminate against octopuses, they are biological creatures like humans. But I just can't imagine the tentacles of a female octopus going all over me.

    ;:So my advice to future medical students, since it will be very hard to keep a good care of your wallet. Watch those tentacles!

    ;:One day a surgeon made a wish that he would become very rich and famous. The second day, he woke up to find he became a giant octopus.

    ;:In a parallel universe, an octopus woke up found that it became a human. It committed suicide.
